11 undergraduate students from across Boston College were chosen to travel to Ecuador to participate in a course taught by Connell School Associate Professor Joyce Pulcini. The new three-week course, entitled Global Health Perspective: Ecuador, was offered through Boston College's Office of International Programs. Students took classes at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito, took field trips to health care facilities and clinics in rural areas, and participated in cultural excursions.
